…to comment on any endeavor Julian Assange or Michael Moore decides to pursue, but I’m going to anyway.
Wealthy naysayers and wealthy pundits can say anything they want – and do – on our supposedly public airwaves and even on our supposedly public “public broadcasting system”. Last Sunday, I watched the supposedly most popular political programs that PBS has to offer and I’ve never seen a more detached-from-reality bunch in my life. I guess if my decades old career had been completely overshadowed by something called Wikileaks in a couple of months, I would be flailing and calling the best thing in journalism since sliced bread anarchy too.
But that’s where we are.
America may be hurt more badly then any other nation on earth by a revolutionary new type of truth, but we are just going to have to take our medicine – for the greater good of the earth.
In my opinion, “CounterPunch” has some pretty big balls asking Michael Moore to step up to the plate and call for participation in the battle against tax cuts. Mr. Moore is perfectly capable of picking his own battles. I hoped he would produce a movie about election fraud instead of a movie about the health care industry, but he already had. Fahrenheit 911 layed it out perfectly at the start of the movie, but we Americans just didn’t see it somehow.
The truth is that most Americans didn’t buy into the lies that were fed to us, even though they were fed to us every day for decades. We didn’t vote for Bush and the overwhelming masses of us are good people who love all cultures. We ARE all cultures, aren’t we?
Despite NPR’s poke at Olbermann recently, Michael got top billing on Keith Olbermann’s great program last night:
Correction: “CounterPunch” was calling for action against more then tax cuts, but there isn’t anybody who has fought harder or longer in all of our important battles then Michael Moore.
